is currently scheduled to be released on Apple TV+ on June 14, 2024.

Road House will release widely on Prime Video on Wednesday, March 20, but its 72% Rotten Tomatoes critics’ score proves those who have already seen the movie generally like it. When the cast and details of Road House were released, there was a general sense of hesitation that the popular 1989 film starring Patrick Swayze did not need to be remade.
